Please help support our weekend and preschool respite programming as we work to build a Respite scholarship fund to help impart a sense of SELF with something as simple as a peaceful visit to the grocery store, the opportunity to attend church, go to the gym, or simply enjoy a lunch date between spouses (as the divorce rate is 80% for autism affected families). This pivot program has become the lifeline to so many families via preschool and weekend respite services. Social isolation is a huge problem for caregivers. Heeding the benefits of Respite Care before becoming exhausted, isolated or overwhelmed is not only fulfilling; it’s responsible and invaluable to everyone concerned. 

Play-Place offers a unique platform of care that incorporates FUN, socialization, interactive play and inclusion – right here at our center. We offer a 3:1 child to staff ratio Play-Place’s goal is to build a scholarship for situations like this. A generous funding of $5000 would allow us to offer 2 five hour sessions to 33 families.

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and all gifts are tax-deductible.


✔ Our goal is $5,000

✔ Your gift of any amount will help give families access to services that are in high demand but lacking

✔ Donate and help stop isolation, exclusion and burnout!

Hearts and Stars Etching

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and all gifts are tax-deductible.

That’s right, we have gorgeous wood pieces that are ripe for laser engraving. Our loose theme is family names!

We have 81 of these still available, at $25.00 each. These will be displayed in the Inspiration Hall, so all our families affected by autism can see that their community (affected and non-affected alike!) loves and supports them.

All heart & stars donations are earmarked specifically for construction expenses.

Families affected by autism are counting on you! Thanks for all your help.
